9780151005642: An Honorable Defeat: The Last Days of the Confederate Government

A dramatic retelling of four months in 1865...; A true story full of political treachery and physical adventure; Author is arguably the foremost authority on the American Civil War; In February, 1865, the end was clearly in sight for the Confederacy. Lee was defeated at Gettysburg, Grant's victory at Memphis had cut the South in two, and Sherman's brutal march through Georgia had destroyed what was left of the Southern economy. With the land shattered, people starving, and no hope left, the reality for the secessionist government was grim. An Honorable Defeat is the story of four months in 1865, during which the South surrendered, the North triumphed, and President Lincoln was assassinated, told with style and with absolute historical accuracy.

Review:

"True history, replete with flies and leeches, the terror of attack, defeat and deprivation. Davis is an exceptional historian and storyteller."
